Fundraise or host an event

Every year, thousands of people like you are inspired to raise money for young people. Your amazing efforts help change the lives of children and restore their hope for the future.

This Christmas, young people need hope more than ever. Whatever your skills or hobbies, whether holding a virtual Christingle or hosting an online quiz night, your fundraising will help us be there for children who need us most. 

So, what will you do?

Christingle

Christingles are festive celebrations taking place in communities around Christmas time. 

We’ve made it as easy as possible to be part of this great tradition and plan a candle-lit event in your local area or online.

Fundraise your own way

You can choose to support us in whatever way you like, it doesn't have to involve exercise.

Whether you want to set up a bake sale, host a dinner, organise a movie night, play games or take on a dance challenge, we've got you covered.

Take a look at our top tips for organising a successful charity fundraiser.

Please remember to put safety first. Pause any door-to-door collections activity during lockdown and follow the latest government guidance to keep yourself and others safe.

We offer charity challenges across the UK - half marathons, 10Ks, charity cycles, skydives and more. There is something for all ages and abilities, and we can send you training plans and recommendations from people who've been through it all before.
